    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Bureau of Reclamation (Boise, ID) in June 2016.

    Interview

    1. Phone Interview: Asked basic questions about my interests and long-term objectives.
    2. Face-to-face: More technical. Asked questions about my professional experiences.

    Overall experience was good. Three person panel asking questions in a "round-robin" style.
